The memorial is located in Confederate Park, which first opened in 1907 with the name Dignan Park, for a chairman of the Board of Public Works. It contained the City’s first supervised playground. The United Confederate Veterans chose Jacksonville as the site for their annual reunion in 1914, and this park was selected as the site for a monument honoring the Women of the Southland. Five months after the reunion was held, the City renamed the park.
